A good-looking teenager died a tragic death after climbing on top of a train.
18-year-old Anna Ursu became a human fireball after being zapped by an electric field.
The teenager was spending time with a friend, when they decided to get on top of a moving train to take a selfie.
The friends of Iasi, Romania, waited for the train to stop at a station and climbed on top it to capture a ”special selfie” and post it on Facebook.
As she was on top of the train and put her leg in the air, an electrical field which surrounded the overhead cables sent 27,000 volts through her body, causing her to burst into a ball of flames.
Her 17-year-old friend, who was also on top of the train, was sent flying by the force of the explosion.
A passerby who saw the terrible accident, risked his own life to try and save the teens before calling emergency services.
Both teens were transported by helicopter to a hospital, but the 18-year-old woman who suffered burns to 50 percent of her body, succumbed to her injuries.
Her friend who survived, said that they wanted to get the “ultimate selfie” and had not even considered the danger.
